    Abstract Our study deals with the characterization of the flow and related heat transfer in a smooth, circular minichannel. A duct with a sudden (sharp-edged) contraction is also considered. Prediction of the pressure loss coefficient in this case is obtained via the commercial code CFX 5.7.1. This code is based on the finite volume method for the solution of the Navier-Stokes and offers several turbulences models (in this study we use the shear stress turbulence model - SST). The numerical results are compared with experimental results obtained for a configuration similar to those considered in the numerical study. The numerical algorithm… More >
